Jasminocereus

Wikipedia Abstract

Jasminocereus (meaning "jasmine-like cereus", referring to the flowers) is a genus of cacti. The genus originates from the Galapagos Islands. Its common name is cereus thourasil. These cacti are extremely rare in cultivation because of the very strict rules for removing plants or seeds from the islands, owned by Ecuador. This cactus genus is the only one that has a species that can be light purple thus the name.Jasminocereus species grow up to 23 feet.
